Colt Cabana Is a world-famous wrestler who has wrestled around the world from Dundee to Japan and back including a short, not so successful, run in the WWE as Scotty Goldman. John Hastings is… not a world-famous wrestler but enjoys talking about the sport on his Podcast as well as being a comedian. Together in the depths of Monkey Barrel Comedy Club and along with a comedy guest, they do comedy and commentary to the weirdest and craziest moments in professional wresting in this outstanding, laugh a minute show!
An amazing hour of comedy that will have you pinned with laughter.
The show is introduced in quite an awkward video introduction by Oli Davis of the show’s sponsor Wrestletalk, a daily wrestling YouTube channel. But immediately after, Colt and John spring into life and begin to perform some sets and poke fun of eachother in what could be described as a comedy version of duelling banjos. This slightly scripted but very hilarious banter is followed by the introduction of their guest. For this night it was Tom Walker who is performing his show at the Assembly Roxy. He was incredible and played along well with Colt and John as they began to look at different clips from the world of wrestling.
From awkward interviews, strange personalities, weird matches and horrific botches, the craziest moments of wrestling are looked at as the trio picks away at every detail. Clips are different every night and it is amazing to see Colt and John’s wrestling knowledge as well as their ability, along with Tom, to make the strangest moments incredibly funny. The finale is always the same but always a treat and its sheer ridiculousness. To give a little bit of criticism, the projection of the clip wasn’t so good and sometimes it was difficult to view the clips depending where you sit though this isn’t the biggest issue and the show is great overall.
If you’re are a wrestling fan, this show is for you. A deep dive and funny look at the amazing world of professional wrestling. If you’re not a fan of wrestling, even the most uneducated in the sport will find this a good laugh with the joke a minute humour and sheer ridiculousness of the clips. Colt and John have produced a truly amazing show this year. Colt Cabana and John Hastings Do Comedy and Commentary to Bad Wrestling Matches is an amazing hour of comedy that will have you pinned with laughter.
